With “social media” connecting us, there’s something missing. The real world. And real people.

You may not be able to change whether you need to work. But you can change how you get to work. Just changing a commute from four to two wheels makes a big difference.

Not only that, once you’re outside the box, you’ll find yourself running into real people again. Lot’s of them. Doing interesting things, going interesting places. And there’s always time to stop and talk.

You can use all social media you want, but it turns out, bicycles are a better way to actually connect.

I intentionally don’t answer my phone a lot. At work, at home… don’t answer it. If it’s important enough they want a proper response, they can jolly well talk to me in person!


Almost every morning, I see 4-6 friends on the ride into work. We wave, say hi, and try to connect for a low five as we pass. One friend and I end up at a local bike shop / coffee shop along the trail, and chat over a scone and coffee.
